Banshee of the Dread Choir Discussion

Temple of Malice, Zhalfirin Void and Fill with Fright for a little more Scry to control whats on the bottom of your library.

Urgoros, the Empty One, Banshee of the Dread Choir and Hypnotic Specter.

If your meta has too much card draw try Black Vise. Its hilarious if you get if on turn one.

Banshee of the Dread Choir will still force a discard if it hits, but it's really better in multiplayer when its myriad ability can work properly (it makes a copy for each opponent you're not attacking, and those copies attack those opponents, while in 1 vs. 1 myriad won't make any copies at all). So yes, the banshee still works against one opponent, but not as effectively (and therefore probably not worth the mana cost).

No you are right, it only works against one Opponent. Banshee of the Dread Choir

Actually, Wrexial will hit the defending player's graveyard, which if this deck is forcing them to discard their cards, you might still hit some things.

Still better to look for Specter-type cards. Like Liliana's Specter for instance.

Also to show us a card, Calixtus, put square brackets around the card name. Like so: Banshee of the Dread Choir. Which is similar to the specters (they have ETB, but the banshee has to hit). Problem is that if you're not playing multiplayer, the banshee's myriad ability won't do anything.

If you don't want to switch Ravos out, probably should consider Tymna the Weaver, because why not?
They both have go wide in mind and can work along just fine.
Myriad works well there with Banshee of the Dread Choir and Herald of the Host, and also Token producer creatures like Captain of the Watch, Geist-Honored Monk and Scion of Vitu-Ghazi

I want more tribes I also want them to bring back "myriad" Banshee of the Dread Choir and "lieutenant" Tyrant's Familiar

Painful Quandary is perfect for your next tutor after destroying your opponents hands. Some cards you might want to add. Banshee of the Dread Choir, Scythe Specter and a nice combo plus fits the theme here is Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank one damage to any opponent will kill then or mill them and gain you lots of life. If you want protection from creatures? If your hand is empty like everyone else's hands? then Ensnaring Bridge works great here. Other good protection is Dread.

I see you have Magus of the Coffers! With only 6 swamps you can make infinite mana. Just add Sword of the Paruns and or Umbral Mantle one of these on your Magus of the Coffers and 6 swamps is infinite black mana
